Being a Cancer born on July 13th, you are characterized by an overwhelming optimism paired with intuitive empathy. While others are unable to understand the feelings of others, you can instinctively read emotions. You use this ability to develop an understanding for the experiences of others. When paired with your natural optimism and positive world view, this ability makes you a valued friend and companion.
Water is your paired element and as a Cancer, you have the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. Similar to the unpredictable and forceful nature of oceans, at times you are overcome with strong waves of emotions. You ride these waves with awareness to gain understanding. As you become more in tune with your own emotions, you find even easier to sense when others are experiencing similar waves. These qualities of water will help you grow as an empathetic individual, but be weary of water's negative qualities, which can cause bouts of emotional instability.
Your sign's planetary ruler is the moon, but because you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by the planet Neptune. The moon's influence causes a strong connection to emotional sensitivity and perceptiveness, but it is Neptune that drives your imagination and spirituality. This combination is reflected in your kindness and compassion. At times it may put your head in the clouds, as you find yourself plunged into a world of fantasy and dreams. A romantic by definition, you use your imagination to create elaborate romantic expectations. While its easy for reality to fall short of these expectations, you use your optimism to avoid prolonged disappointment. While companionship is fulfilling, make sure to spend some time alone as well. Finding balance will be the key to your happiness.
As a social and empathetic person, it is likely that you will be very successful in people-based careers. Public relations, sales or advising positions would all suit you well. Alternately, your imagination may make creative expression into a wise career path. Look to the comic work of Cheech Marin or the varied roles of Harrison Ford, who were both born on July 13th, for inspiration.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a young woman awaiting a sailboat. You desire a life marked with adventure and excitement. You find yourself pushed and motivated by this longing, in an almost spiritual way. This expectancy will not go unfulfilled, as you have the ability to make your dreams a reality.
